She’s been behind each event that we have hosted this year. As a community outreach assistant, Rachel Bernstein has made herself an absolute asset to our CandleX team. She has given countless hours to this organization and the Beijing community. It has been a pleasure to have her on the team and she has made a huge contribution.

Xiaojie Qin, Founder and Director of CandleX:

For the 7th year anniversary, I decided to answer a question that I got asked over and over again over the years: How did you get started and how do you run the organization? I thought the best way to answer is to use our value statement as an anchor. I review our organization introduction every year, and I compound on the values.

We are looking for a wide range or hardworking, enthusiastic people with a range of different skills. Most of the people we are looking for don’t need any specific experience, just some spare time, the ability to learn fast and a passion for mental health – so get in touch!

As we are celebrating completing our 8th year in Beijing on 1st April 2023, we want to introduce to you team members who are less known to the public. We are very fortunate to have volunteers who stay with us for years and become the pillars of the organization. Nourouz, a face that many have never met, is one of them. She is the coordinator of the mental health peer support group, and here is her experience with us.
